By every objective measure, America is in decline. But liberals insist that it is moving "forward." The modern philosophy of progress is Darwinian, holding that the latest development, whether of a country or a species, is always the best one. Mutations are assumed to be perfective, not destructive. Obama is the one "we have been waiting for," chanted his followers in 2008. They identified him as the agent of the final phase in liberalism´s revolution. In 2012, Obama drew upon this revolutionary hope again, coining "forward" as his campaign slogan. The rhetoric was slightly more subdued --
FEMA´s in charge of Darwinism in NY and NJ right now.
Christie fawned all over Obama,helping him win the election,ostensibly to secure federal funds. Guess what those funds aren´t coming so there´s going to have to be a tax increase. The media and left will rejoice over raising taxes and say all republican governors should be like Christie.
Obama and the Obamunists are smug because they´re not too terribly interested in reality. After all, the world owes them a livin´. And like the fabled grasshopper, not the industrious ant, they´re going to continue fiddling until winter comes and freezes them to death. Winter´s almost here.

Heres the nasty little truth about evolution.
The VAST majority of mutastions are either inconsequential, or fatal. "perfection" is only reached after a lot af "imperfection" dies out.
And the other little truth, there is no perfection, evolution whether Natural or societal is a response to change. Those who cannot adapt die out.Mammoths couldn´t adapt to a warming world (Neandertals either). Communist countries could not adapt to the information revolution. Most freed colonies could not adapt to self rule. The list is endless.
Republicans better learn to adapt to the changing AMerican landscape as well.
on Drudge today it showed a picture of the Chinese leader with the caption ´top commie´ . There was a picture of obama close by. The captions should have been the same. Frank M. Davis would be so proud to watch scores of ´educated´ vote for communism couched as ´fairness´. Fair in communist ussr in the 60´s meant everyone but the ´leaders´ had nothing but cold and starvation and no hope. We are moving ´forward´ rapidly to that conclusion. Only a true hatred filled unAmerican like obama could reilsh that conclusion for what has been the greatest democracy on earth. those who relish destruction will reap the same whether they have the sense to see it or not.
#3, the ´grasshopper and the aunt´ analogy is quite good. However, I don´t think these particular ants will be so willing to rescue these particular grasshoppers.
And speaking of brilliant analogies, I love the caption to today´s photo, the "Trylon and Perisphere". Had to look it up because I just knew it would be something brilliant, and it was. They were two structures created for the 1939 New York Worlds Fair. http://tinyurl.com/aw2leyt Thanks, Lucianne, for once again broadening my knowledge!
if leftists think evolution is so great, why aren´t they in favor of man made climate change? by their reckoning, it would be a perfect example of Darwinism. but, why ask why about anything any one of them thinks? They don´t think.
OBAMA: You folks represent the first entirely recessed Cabinet in American history. Do me proud. Let´s go round the table. HHS? MICHAEL MOORE: Amend ObamaCare to include lesser beings, sir. OBAMA: No. First, the remaining mammalians; then, things with legs; finally, air breathers. Treasury? PAUL KRUGMAN: Stimulus IV should tip the worldwide economy into depression within a year, sir. OBAMA: Good. That gets us closer to a one-world government. OMB? BERNIE MADOFF: [videoconferencing from prison] Economies are annoyingly resilient, sir. OBAMA: Agreed. Allred, have DOJ lawyers discover justification for footing a European bailout. We’ll overwhelm their systems with worthless dollars. CIA? MATT DAMON: al-Zawaheri´s on board, sir. We´ll get non-specific advance notice of an atrocity if we grant him U. S. citizenship and a drone exemption. OBAMA: Go for it. NSA, how’d it work out with Chavez? SEAN PENN: He’s adopted me, sir. OBAMA: Congratulations, Chico. Transportation? AL GORE: Phase out private ownership of vehicles by the end of your third term, sir. At that point, traveling by high-speed rail—-whether or not it exists-—becomes compulsory. OBAMA: Tap the Amish for additional public transport ideas. Defense? ADAM BALDWIN: Devote half the budget to weapons procurement, sir. OBAMA: Alec, this doesn’t sound like you. We can’t . . . wha? Oh Good Lord, I picked the wrong Baldwin! Oh, well. State? YOKO ONO: Divvy up our nukes to the world, sir. We can only negotiate when everyone starts from a position of strength. OBAMA: Make it so, Sudoko. Homeland Security? SHEILA JACKSON LEE: [interrupting cell phone conversation] What?
The campaign theme, "Forward" can be found in the communist manifesto, Uncle Alinsky used to brainwash his followers. Our IMPOSTER in the Oval Office was born in Kenya to a Muslim/Communist father and a Communist mother. Barack Hussein Mohammad Soetoro Obama will use his second term to continue his quest toward turning the USA into a Communist satellite/third world country.When he finishes his secone term, We, The People can then file charges against him and Pelosi for their collusion, as she knew when she approved his fake Hawaiian birth certificate it has been ´manufactured´. They both deserve looooong term jail time to answer for their crime of pulling the largest scam against the USA and for degrading the office of president. We did NOT get the Change we were promised, all we got was an ingnorant black, Kenyan who HATES EVERYTHING America, and intends on destroying OUR GREAT nation as we know it, NOT what he thinks it should be. Impeachment would be too good for this FAUX president and his entire corrupt administration, and his czars.
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Eric Kearney, the Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor facing scrutiny over his personal and business finances, revealed Wednesday that he, his wife and their publishing company owe more than $825,000 in late federal and state taxes. The disclosure followed nearly two weeks of questions that have overshadowed gubernatorial hopeful Ed FitzGerald´s introduction of Kearney as his running mate. And it came during a 95-minute teleconference with reporters in which Kearney repeatedly stressed that he was offering an "unprecedented" peek into a politician´s money matters. The session kept alive doubt about how thoroughly FitzGerald and his campaign vetted
Donna Baker of Adrian, Mich., owns an accounting firm, payroll company and retail store. Her husband, Kim, is the sixth generation owner of a dairy farm. While the four businesses are separate entities, they count as one employer under the health-care law due to a technicality — Mrs. Baker is a minority stakeholder in the 1,800-acre property that her husband’s farm sits on, plus she helps out with some of the farm’s bookkeeping. As a result, the Bakers are subject to aggregation rules in the U.S. tax code, which means they would be required to offer health-insurance benefits to their
Some members of Congress are about to get their own kind of sticker shock when they head to the new insurance exchanges. A few will get a price cut. As the Journal has reported, a provision in the health law requires lawmakers to get their benefits alongside small-business employees for the first time, and that means lawmakers’ premiums will suddenly be tied to their age. Members of Congress used to pay the same rate, regardless of how old they were, which was around $186 a month to cover just themselves on one popular plan after their employer (in this case, the
President Obama, in remarks about the economy today, said, The combined trends of income inequality and decreasing (economic) mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe. He then called for — drum roll – a higher minimum wage, repeal of the sequester, and extension of unemployment compensation benefits. And he stressed that Obamacare will boost the economy. It doesn’t appear to have dawned on the president yet that we’re entering the sixth year of the Obama presidency.
Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers, said she was opposed to Detroit selling off its renowned museum art collection, which is valued at $1 billion to $2 billion, to help pay down the bankrupt city´s estimated $18 billion in debt. She said the collection should be kept since it would be a cultural boon to the city once it does recover. "Detroit can be a jewel (again) in that state. I would caution against selling the kind of assets that that art collection is," she told the Washington Examiner during a Wednesday morning breakfast with reporters hosted by
Kentucky Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes appears to have stolen her family’s “favorite recipes” she posted on her campaign website, when commemorating Thanksgiving last week. The Democratic challenger to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) displayed recipes for a “cranberry-pineapple salad” and a “sweet potato casserole,” both of which were “near-exact copies” of recipes online. The Hill reports: Kentucky Democratic Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes’s family recipes, posted on her website on Wednesday for the Thanksgiving holiday, appear to be lifted from other websites. One, for cranberry-pineapple salad, is a near-exact copy of a Kraft recipe for “Festive Cranberry-Pineapple Salad,” as posted to
The 2013 hurricane season just ended as one of the five quietest years since 1960. But don’t expect anyone who pointed to last year’s hurricanes as “proof” of the need to act against global warming to apologize; the warmists don’t work that way. Warmist claims of a severe increase in hurricane activity go back to 2005 and Hurricane Katrina. The cover of Al Gore’s 2009 book, “Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis,” even features a satellite image of the globe with four major hurricanes superimposed. Yet the evidence to the contrary was there all along. Back in 2005 I
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
Nineteen people stood behind President Obama on stage in the Executive Office Building Tuesday as the president kicked off a new campaign to promote Obamacare. One of those people, a young Florida woman named Monica Weeks, introduced Obama after telling the story of being struck with Crohn´s Disease at age 19 and receiving expensive treatments for several years that were covered by her parents´ health care plan — because Obamacare allowed her to remain on that plan until age 26. Now, Weeks said, she has coverage through a job. "The Affordable Care Act gives young adults who are just starting
